Ground Rules

Each individual involved in this campaign (advisory board, organizers, volunteers, contributors, and other interested parties) agrees to:

  1. create a community based on respect and inclusiveness.
  2. make decisions as a group, understanding that time constraints and levels of participation occasionally make executive decision-making necessary. Use your judgement.
  3. follow through on commitments or give adequate notice if one cannot be met.
  4. honour other collaborators’ time and participation levels.
  5. respect variety in relationships to use of non-violent civil disobedience.
  6. seek recourse through mediation within the group, should disputes arise. If this proves ineffective, an outside mediator agreed upon by both/all parties will be appointed.
  7. refrain from bullying, harassing−sexually or otherwise, or placing undue pressure on any fellow collaborator (see rule #1).
